Hearts players have been recognised by their fellow pro’s after their league-winning season.
The team of the season for Scottish football’s second tier has been revealed by players’ union PFA Scotland.
And four Hearts first-team players – who played a key role in this season’s Championship win – have been selected by their fellow pro’s among the best in the league.
Lining up in a 4-3-3 formation, each union member in the SPFL Championship had a say on who should be included and a quartet from Tynecastle came in the top placings for their positions.
The team, in full, is listed below.
